DID YOU KNOW??

• Eating too much sugar does not cause diabetes, but being overweight is a risk factor.
• People with prediabetes may not have any symptoms.
• An estimated 86 million Americans ages 20 years and older have prediabetes.
• And… 89% of that 86 million have NO IDEA they’re at risk.

THE GOOD NEWS IS...

National Institutes of Health research has shown that programs like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program reduce the number of new cases of type 2 diabetes by 58% overall and by 71% in people over 60.

CHANGE IS TOUGH

Let’s face it, if change were easy, we’d all do it.  You’ve spent years developing habits that you can’t expect to change overnight. It’s tough. We can help.

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program gives you the skills you need and the support you deserve to make lasting, healthy lifestyle changes.

YMCA MEMBERSHIP NOT REQUIRED

To participate in the program, you must be:

• 18 years or older,
• Overweight (BMI ≥ 25)* and diagnosed with prediabetes via one of three blood tests or a previous diagnosis of gestational diabetes.** (If you don’t have a blood test result, you must have a qualifying risk score.)

The program is a yearlong lifestyle change program that engages participants in 25 sessions throughout the year. With instruction and support from Lifestyle Coaches, participants learn how to incorporate healthier eating, moderate physical activity, and problem-solving and coping skills into their daily lives. The curriculum is CDC-approved and is part of the CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program.
